Katya Jones is returning to Strictly Come Dancing for her third year. She made headlines during the last series when she kissed her dance partner Seann Walsh despite being married to Strictly choreographer and dancer Neil Jones. The pair have now split.
Katya hit the dance floor in St Petersburg when she was just six years old. She joined a partnership with fellow Strictly dancer – and now husband – Neil Jones in 2008. Seven years later, they were married, and became World Professional Latin Showdance Champions. They are also four times undefeated British National Professional Champions.
However, Katya has had quite the run on Strictly. She was first partnered with Ed Balls on Strictly in 2016. We have no doubt that everyone will still be talking about this even 10 years on…
And then in 2017, she won the series with partner Joe McFadden.
